If you think the security of static websites doesn't matter, *imagine* if someone maliciously altered the "copy and paste" instructions for Let's Encrypt. Would you detect the change? (Image below is faked, but you get the point. I'm just using Let's Encrypt as a common example)


@climagic On that topic I highly recommend Troy Hunt's article + video:


It really showcasts why you want HTTPS for your static websites.

(Of course there is more to security than HTTPS, but it's the most basic element for every website.)
